Anne Arundel County Police have arrested a North Carolina man they say left his 98-year-old mother in a truck for nearly five hours at a parking garage at Maryland Live! Casino.
Officers received a 911 call about 6:35 p.m. Monday about the woman the truck. Officers say the truck arrived at the garage about 1:45 p.m.
Police say the woman, who uses a wheelchair, was in the car alone with no food or water. Officers say the air temperature was 81 degrees. Authorities say paramedics gave the woman water and found that she was not in medical distress.
Police say they contacted the woman's son by cellphone about 7:15 p.m. and he went to the car. Sixty-seven-year-old Dwight McGinnis Jr. of Raleigh, North Carolina, was charged with vulnerable adult neglect.
